Raking, sorting, building, creating


After a wet Winter there’s some drying-out for the garden to do before we start planting for the season. But there’s plenty to get on with… Hamish has been sorting the seeds and listing varieties for 2014, we’ve raked the wildflower strip so that we can see where the gaps are to fill in, clearing has revealed new growth, green manure sown last year has been dug in to enrich the soil and the composting toilet is in construction.

Our newly-expanded events team is busy too, hatching ideas for this year’s themes. Watch this space for details.
